CHANGE OF DATE: SEPTEMBER PUB EVENING WILL BE THURS 20TH
Message from Susan Quinn
September is now upon us and with that our first pub evening of the new season. The date for our next meeting will be Thursday 20th September and not the third Tuesday of the month which is our usual date. It was originally planned that our speakers for our September pub evening would be our three Westminster City councillors but due to unexpected conflicting meetings our councillors cannot attend but will be joining us instead on Tuesday 16th October. However I am pleased to say that we do have another speaker for that evening and I hope as many as possible of you will be able to come along.
Our speaker will Stephen Spavin, the Outreach and Befriending Support Co-ordinator for Age UK Westminster. As I am sure you are aware Age UK does a great deal of valuable work in the community and Stephen will speak to us about some of the activities, services and projects that they provide. In particular he is involved in the Befriending programme but will also be able to provide a broad overview of the other work that is done by Age UK in our community.
We will meet as usual in the upstairs Theatre Bar of the Victoria Pub on Strathearn Place from 6.15 – 8.00pm on Thursday 20th September. It will be a good opportunity to meet up with friends and neighbours after the summer break and to enjoy a drink or two in a most convivial atmosphere. As this is our first get together after the summer we will also devote some time to discussing any issues that you would like to raise with the HPEA or would like us to be aware of. This is the place to air your views and help us to make our community the best possible place to live.
So please NOTE THE DATE – and I look forward to seeing you at the Victoria on the 20th.
